3 Things to Consider When Investing in Mini-Piling

As a foundational solution in its own right, mini-piling has the strength to support the structure of a property and can even be used to reinforce the stability of an existing foundation. With this said, there are several things that should be taken into consideration when it comes to selecting the most appropriate foundational method for a project. Here are 3 things to consider when it comes to mini-piling…


Some projects are dictated by time restraints so it is important to choose a foundational solution that complements this. Mini-piles can be installed a lot faster than alternative methods like groundworks due to their smaller diameter as this makes them a lot lighter and therefore easier to transport. As a result, the average mini-piling project can take between 2-5 days to complete.


You can’t put a price on foundational security as soil displacement can slowly lead to the development of subsidence. It is important to stop subsidence in its tracks sooner rather than later, however nobody wants to spend a fortune doing so. Mini-piling is great for residential projects and is often a lot cheaper than traditional piling or groundworks due to the nature of the application and the materials that are utilised.


A suitability for mini-piling is often determined by the project itself. The method is considered to be residential which means that it is often implemented in order to reinforce the existing foundation of a house, flat or bungalow. When considering an investment in mini-piling, it is important to ensure that your project is suitable as commercial properties are often eligible for traditional piling methods instead.

Here at Rhino Piling, we often recommend mini-piling in situations where headroom is severely restricted or in residential projects where the work is typically carried out on an existing property. After all, traditional piling is completely unsuitable for such applications and the smaller size of a piling rig makes it much easier to complete a project within budget and on-time.
